Areas At the University of St.Gallen institutes give the possibility for chair holders to bring together their resources and develop closer collaboration. Institues also provide the infrastructure to host research centres. The Institute of Political Science (IPW-HSG) plays such a role for one chair and one research centre. Since 2005 the Chair of International Relations is part of the IPW-HSG under the direction of Prof. James D. Davis. In 2006 also the Chair of Comparative Politics under the direction of Prof. Daniele Caramani became part of the IPW (now holding the Chair of Comparative Politics at the University of Zürich). During that period Prof. Davis created the Centre for Security, Economy, Technology (C SET), one of the leading policy centres in Switzerland on questions of international security linked to economic and technological change. Since 2009 the C SET, under the direction of Prof. Davis, is managed by Daniel Müller. We provide more information about the chair, the C SET and Energy Governance on separate pages.
